Whether you’re new to yoga or a believer in a-downward-dog-a-day, we’ve lined up some of the best yoga studios in Hong Kong. Time on a yoga mat promises countless benefits, and when you’ve tried it for yourself, you won’t need any more convincing. Here’s our handy guide to yoga studios and private instructors around town.

Fivelements Habitat is based on the same innovative wellness principles as its award-winning Fivelements Retreat in Bali. This 15,000 square foot city offering, located in the heart of Causeway Bay, couldn’t feel further away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square below (thanks, partly, to its Balinese-inspired decor). Its aim is to promote physical and mental wellbeing, whilst encouraging self-exploration. It offers a long list of yoga and sacred arts classes (more than 30 in total!), so whether you are more of a traditionalist, devoted to Hatha, or want to try your hand at AntiGravity Yoga (suspended in a hammock) or Dharma Wheel Yoga (to help you move safely into those impressive backbends), your options are endless! There’s also an equally-wide range of classes focused on movement, meditation, sound, and tea ceremonies. Plus, the epicurean plant-based eatery, Sakti Elixir, serves up healthy vegan-friendly, gluten- and dairy-free dishes. And as a bonus, The Wellness Sanctuary offers massage and bodywork, energy healing and spa treatments.
Sassy Perk: For Sassy readers, their first two yoga and sacred arts classes are free (1 x yoga, 1 x sacred arts). Call or email to reserve your place!
